Elderly Instruments Celebrates 45th Anniversary

Elderly Instruments in Lansing

This week, Lansing based Elderly Instruments, a world renowned musical instrument megastore, turned 45 years old.  

The store officially opened July 5, 1972. And they have been expanding ever since, with a reputation as a "megastore" for musical instruments.

Pat Zelenka has been working there since 2000 but has been a customer longer than that.

He's also a musician and plays several instruments. That's what attracted him to the store.
